After operating coed clubs, working as consultants and working in other areas of the fitness industry, Daren Carter, Mike Widener and Charlie Woodward joined forces to create a fitness center just for women. In 1998, the partners founded Contours Express, a women-only center catering to towns with populations too small to support a full-scale, coed gym.
Contours Express members follow a 29-minute cue tape that keeps them moving through aerobic stations and strength training machines. A fitness trainer (the franchisee or an employee) works with the members during their workouts, providing motivation and other services.
Clubs, which are usually located in strip centers, are about 1,200 square feet in size and can accommodate up to 20 members at a time.
Contours Express has been a leader in international women’s fitness franchises dating back to 1998. Our fitness franchise opportunity started in USA, bet we have sought to change the women’s fitness franchise concept across the world. Contours Express has become a major international franchise network with over 700 locations in 25 countries.
For those looking to start a women’s gym franchise, our slogan “The Family Friendly Gym for Women” is much more than words. It’s a way of operating our family of efficient, well designed, women’s gyms in a localized fashion.
